Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Frederic Leighton was born in Scarborough, England in 1830, the son of a doctor. His grandfather, Sir James Leighton, was court physician to Czar Alexander I of Russia. Soon after Nicholas I became Czar in 1825 the Leighton family left Russia and spent the ensuring years traveling around Europe, giving Leighton first-hand acquaintance with its culture and treasures. Unlike most major artists of the nineteenth century Leighton did not study at the Royal Academy Schools, but received his training (showing 500 of 1687 characters).
